Dots

This script is used to sift through many possible choices and select those most important to the participant group. For example, there are many times during GMB sessions where it is important to prioritize or reduce the number of items on which the group is working. This might take the form of choosing the top graph over time for inclusion in the model, or picking the stocks that will be incorporated.
